Arianna Huffington, the author, journalist, and businesswoman founded the Huffington Post, abbreviated as Huffpost, sometimes Huffpo. The Huffpost is a liberal American news and opinion site that reaches millions of audiences around the globe covering a range of topics from health, politics, culture, and more. It was originally meant to be an outlet for liberal commentary and still follows such a stance in its content. In 2011, AOL acquired the company for $315 million USD and made Arianna the editor-in-chief.

In 2012, it was the most popular political site in the world based on Alexa’s Global Traffic Rank, and data collected by Compete and Quantcast.

Ariana was born in beautiful Athens, Greece before continuing her education in economics at the University of Cambridge, and her life in the United States. Over the course of her life she’s written twelve books, ran for the California Governor position and failed, and started a new company with a focus on mental health and wellness, called Thrive Global.

In Focus, Psychologist and journalist Daniel Goleman, author of the #1 international bestseller Emotional Intelligence, offers a groundbreaking look at today’s scarcest resource and the secret to high performance and fulfillment: attention.

Combining cutting-edge research with practical findings, Focus delves into the science of attention in all its varieties, presenting a long overdue discussion of this little-noticed and under-rated mental asset. In an era of unstoppable distractions, Goleman persuasively argues that now more than ever we must learn to sharpen focus if we are to survive in a complex world. Goleman boils down attention research into a threesome: inner, other, and outer focus. Drawing on rich case studies from fields as diverse as competitive sports, education, the arts, and business, he shows why high-achievers need all three kinds of focus, and explains how those who rely on Smart Practices—mindfulness meditation, focused preparation and recovery, positive emotions and connections, and mental “prosthetics” that help them improve habits, add new skills, and sustain greatness—excel while others do not.

Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (a.d. 121–180) succeeded his adoptive father as emperor of Rome in a.d. 161—and Meditations remains one of the greatest works of spiritual and ethical reflection ever written. With a profound understanding of human behavior, Marcus provides insights, wisdom, and practical guidance on everything from living in the world to coping with adversity to interacting with others.

Consequently, the Meditations have become required reading for statesmen and philosophers alike, while generations of ordinary readers have responded to the straightforward intimacy of his style. In Gregory Hays’s new translation—the first in a generation—Marcus’s thoughts speak with a new immediacy: never before have they been so directly and powerfully presented.

Read More
